Review by Monica Larner
Albino Rocca has also done an excellent job with the 2010 Barbaresco Ronchi. This is a stunning and strikingly beautiful wine that evolves and shifts with each swirl of the glass. At first you pick up on the brightness of the fruit, then the warmth of its leather and tobacco aromas. Lastly, the wine imparts a beautiful string of licorice, tar, cola and dried mint. This is one of my favorite Barbarescos in 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.
